96W - 25W (max RB5009 declared consumption)=71W
3x13W=39W
71W>39W

Maybe the AP's are not 13W each?
And also more than 48x0.42A=20,16=20W that a port should provide, as 3x20=60W still less than the theoretically available 71W?

Re: hAP lite - nothing works. Please help

To be fair, judging from the frequency with which the issue is posted on the forum, it is not very clear. Particularly for an AP, it can be confusing. In a home setup, if there is a ISP modem, it has typically 4 LAN ports. So, in the simplest possible setup, you have your desktop/or laptop connected...

Re: Green LED is not lit- L009UiGS-RM

Generic troubleshooting in these cases. Try with another cable, first thing. Then, since you have several free ports, try on another port. The lighting of the ports leds should be independent from port IP/bridge/whatever settings (of course unless the port is disabled), it should only depend on conn...

More explicitly, OP now has:

And should run:

Is that right?

Re: I'm going to jump off the building:CCR1036-8G-2S+

Cannot say about Mikrotik routers, but on other computing devices memory chips are usually part of the personality of the device. If you replace them with exactly the same make/model chip the new chips are more likely to adapt to the new (please read as old) environment. Newer, larger or speedier ch...

Well network terminations/connectors/plugs and crimping them have always been a PITA, in my experience, CAT7 should be worse.

Well, that cable is not for crimping, which doesn't mean that it cannot be crimped, but that it may not work right when crimped (that may depend also on the type/quality of the plug and of the crimping tool). Apart from that, it seems like a rigid cable, not suitable for flying/loose patch cables. B...

A doubt.
In the screenshot you posted you have
10 Mbps(2 entries, Full and Half duplex)
100 Mbps (as above)
then it "jumps" to:
2.5 Gbps

Shouldn't it have also a setting to force
1.0 Gbps Full Duplex

You can try setting (temporarily) the allowed interfaces to "all" both in Mac server and mac server Winbox.
Also could the !dynamic setting in

I am not convinced. You have two devices and both have the same hardware defect on ether1? Improbable. You managed to access them from Wi-Fi, this should mean that the unit on the router side is working. Or at least Winbox (via MAC) had access as you could export/save the configuration of both devic...

As side questions, I see that you have 192.168.120.150 on the mAP on wlan1 set as static, so the DHCP is used only (through the mAP DHCP relay) to assign (if it works) an IP in the 192.168.120.0 range to one of the port of the RB5009? And if I get this right the three devices (stove, mAP and RB5009)...

Shouldn't it be "dst-port"?
If port number is the same you don't need "to-ports" but adding it shouldn't create any problem, and it makes it more readable.
